Erosion of the Right to Asylum – Informal Readmission Arrangements to the Detriment of Individual Safeguards?

Topic suggested by the Legal Centre Lesvos; cosupervision by dr. Joyce De Coninck. The European Border and Coast Guard Regulation of 2019, endows Frontex with executive powers and the ability to conclude arrangements with third countries for the purpose of readmission. However, such informal readmission arrangements may prove problematic from the vantage point of a returned individual, when no avenues of legal recourse are available throughout which an individual can contest his/her return. The question thus arises, if and how such informal readmission arrangements may be reconciled with the right to asylum and/or the prohibition of refoulement. Have sufficient safeguards been put in place in order to prevent violations of said rights? How have previous readmission arrangements ensured compliance therewith?
